A responsible, resilient supply chain supports our ability to transition from a linear to a circular economy.
Making the world a better place with technology begins with how we design, make, use, and reuse that technology. This commitment is core to our desire to power an inclusive future.
A responsibly managed supply chain upholds human rights and promotes worker health and well-being. Cisco works to minimize negative environmental impacts and collaborates to promote healthy ecosystems.
Our holistic approach extends from how we design, build, and deliver products, to how we value the assets we have and turn them into new products. We also apply Cisco technology to support our customers in their own circular transformations.
We have set ambitious goals and committed the necessary resources to make meaningful progress in reducing our environmental impact and accelerating our contributions to a circular economy.
